Friends of George and Gracie on the Topic of Dolphin Soldiers

This is my personal site, but I also run Friends of George and Gracie, where I use examples from science fiction to illustrate very real present-day environmental and animal rights issues.

My latest post might be of interest to some of you. It briefly discusses the use of dolphins by the United States Navy and the 1973 film The Day of the Dolphin.

SEE leaping dolphins! SEE girls in bikinis! SEE George C. Scott… um… gesturing!

If you haven’t seen it, I’m going to warn you that it is not a happy, uplifting story. I don’t really think that’s a spoiler. The tone of the film’s opening scenes will clue you into that. Incidentally, I reviewed the film before writing that blog post, and the ending wasn’t quite as sad as I remembered it. Still, better keep the tissues nearby.

So watch the film, then check out the blog.
